1. Mitt Romney
Lets be real Mitt on the outside and his presidental looks fits the mold of what the media would like to cover. Also Mitt follows the typical republican mold. Against taxes on corporations, Against regulations, and less taxes, "smaller government". Mitt is really not a conservative and is a moderate republican who will use the power of governmnet to make changes he sees fit. Most of these changes are mandates, destorying individual freedoms and giving many in the corporate and government lairs free passes. He has alot of experience shirking businesses and shipping jobs overseas. We have a job problem here not in India.
So if you want someone who will likely just give wall street what they want, support the FED, continue bailouts and call them tax cuts vote for Romeny. Also watch how in the age of the tea party how his answered have changed from 2008 to now. Obama will win against Mitt because the independents wouldn't be able to see much of a different between them and wont be interested in returning to the BUSH republicans.

2. Rick Perry
Rick Perry is the southern answer to the southern vote. Mitt just can't get the southern voter its that simple. Rick Perry has alot of his own problems clearly not with Christian voters but with those who see how his record of abusive power in the exective branch. This will turn off many in the constitutional conservative movement. Also his illegal immgrantion stance and his ties to mexico will not go over well with most republicans. Thou moderate republicans wont be much of a issue remember Bush wanted amensty for illegals. Rick Perry has a government record that once exposed will bring about many doughts that he is the solution for America. Also having once been a Democrat and support AL Gore will also split the vote for many Republicans on trust.
Also Obama and left will use many strong OP ideas about religion and his texas record against him. Again losing the independants.

3. Michelle Bachmann
Michelle is passionate about her beliefs and has helped her find many supporters. Again she has also not been attacked about her background from republicans yet but more from liberals. Her lack of foreign policy experience and her job of working for the IRS is not something conservatives want to hear. Her religious and references to GOD on IRENE and other quotes will eat her alive from independents and moderates. Obamacare can't be the only word she can say when trying to get the popular vote. She is also a woman and sadly enough even women wont vote for women.


Hermain Cain
EX FED Supervisor does not go well with conservatives. Herman Cain does have good command of the stage and his answers. Cain is very pro business and against alot of taxes. Though again being an outsider and no voting record can help his chances. Cain could get many voters interested but getting thru the debates and not deemed by the media a front runner doesnt give him many chances to screw up or shine. I think his sense of humor and simple answers bring people to his side. In a general election with Obama it could be very interesting and in many ways Cain could be a good VP choice but Cain still has to have a record people can review.

John Huntsman.
This is Mitt Romney light, pro illegal immgrantion, tells you what you want to hear and more interested in bringing Hb1 visa jobs to America then American jobs. Working for Obama as China Ambass. doesn't make many feel warm and fuzzy about the guy. Bringing the troops home losses some republicans but most would vote for him just to get rid of Obama and the independents would vote for Huntsman and even some democrats to end the war. Against Obama its a toss up and independent and democrat voters switching to huntsman.

Rick Santorum
Rick is Geroge Bush with a bad record and likes to pretend he didnt make any of those bad choices while in congress. Rick like Newt Gingrich is doommed to their records of which follow big government and even bigger supporting of social and economic failures. Rick wears GOD on his sleeve and is jealous Rick Perry talking with Jerry Farwell Jr at religious events. Rick is not ready to lead a nation towards freedom and suspect all out war with many nations as a result. With a nation bankrupt voters wont be sold on more wars and endless spending even if the person has a R next the name.


Newt Gingrich.
Baggage so much baggage that his mistress and ex wife might just show up at the convention and or the nation debate and call him out.
Newt is a typical compromissing Republican on Princples and using the word Reagan hoping you dont notice how much material he steals from other people to give the illusion he is smart. Obama wins easy

Ron Paul
Just saying Ron Pauls name makes some people scream with misconceptions of who the person is without even knowing anything about Ron Paul. Ron Paul simply put tells the truth, uses facts, promotes liberty and follows the constitution for many within the republican party it is diffcult to face that truth. For Democrats and Progressives he is the worst type of the Republican because he is against many of the social and economic planning they so willingly promote.
Bringing the troops home no nation building, ending the IRS, offer alt solutions to the FED and our money supply. A consistant record on the current issues we currently face all see prime and ready for centerstage but the liberal media and right wing talk radio wont have any of it. Paul will get democrat voters, republicans and independants and beat OBama in a landslide. Problem with Paul is he is to Honest. That really is the problem to honest on freedom, believes in liberty of which the media and people in charge don't want you to know about. For every question he willl get asked will be made to push the norm of society without government saviors and false promises. So honest it shocks the senses to some. Asking him to answer serious issues in 30 secs and promoting freedom in the process makes those dependant and brainwashed on governmnet and social norms nervious. Being against the endless wars and our currently foreign policy does not win over close minded people about US history and the middle east. Paul was telling people all these issues back in 2007 before they came true instead of a visionary he is still to this day the honest person in the room full of pretenders and lairs and America still wants to live in fantasy world. Basically if Americans were smart and serious about liberty and constitutional government Ron Paul would be the Front Runner and Obama would be a memory. But the reality is Americans are stupid and they think the constitution is a living breathing document that sits in government building and every election time people use the word and have no idea what it says.

I woke up from the fantasy world and many people are still looking for pretenders to make them feel safe and blame the current whitehouse resident for all the problems the current PRETENDERS helped CREATE.

Freedom Works

well it is very clear what liberals want republicans to do. nominate John Huntsman. He is one of their own. They win no matter who loses.


Reality? both Perry and Romney are good candidates and one of them will win the nomination. Liberals will be apoplectic.

Neither are idiots. Neither are corrupt. Neither are morons like the left says.

Both are good solid republicans which is the real thing liberals hate about them. The rest is deflection and fluff.


Chances to win? about 48% but climbing... It all depends on the economy come labor day next year. if it is improving Obama wins. If it is worse Obama looses. if unemployment remains high, Obama is in trouble. If Unemployment shows some steady growth, Obama wins.


I wish there was some liberal honesty out here on C-D. All I see is the spin.

Perry is pro-illegal immigration... not a very conservative stance.

I also think they are both good candidates, though I prefer Romney. The country has gotten so hyper and partisan that I think a President Romney will help settle things down.

I disagree. I think compassionate and conservative immigration reform is essential to the well-being of this country, both financially and for America's long-term security.

Default Absurd analysis

To begin with, no Republican can claim to be better than Bush, since: 1) None of the candidates spoke out when Bush was wrecking the country and 2) None of the candidates acknowledge the reality that a Bush-damaged economy cannot be remedied and resuscitated by obstructing the President, proposing more cuts, and holding firm on rejecting all taxes. Republicans created the problems that plague this country today. They obviously are not capable of fixing what they don't know how to run or what they have broken.

1. Mitt Romney - People have long taken a gander at this stupid creature and soundly rejected him in '07. Spouts the usual GOP nonsense, crap that has never worked, and plans that are absolutely worthless in coping with a Bush-damaged economy. When it was discovered that Bush lied to go to war, he along with the others sat silently picking the toe jam from his toes. Acts like a pompous, arrogrant airhead. Struts around like he's already wrapped up the nomination, as if someone told him that by merely "looking presidential", he has it wrapped up. What a fool. What a goon. Does nothing to dispel the notion that the GOP is the party that supports bigotry and racial insensitivity. Clueless on civil rights. He is far inferior to President Obama.

2. Rick Perry - What rock did he crawl out from under? Good ol boy, rugged, manly, macho, tough, farmer john neanderthal. Better suited for shoveling cow manure on somebody's ranch. Only one state benefited from the disastrous policies of the village idiot, and Texas was it. Perry somehow thinks being the Governor during this time qualifies him to run the country. Wants to get rid of Social Security. Same old GOP crap. Same as Romney. Both a different shade of brown BS. Represents Dubya II. Does nothing to dispel the notion that the GOP is the party that supports bigotry and racial insensitivity. Clueless on civil rights. President Obama easily annihilates this rampaging caveman.

3. Michelle Bachmann - Shames the dignity of the political process by her very presence like Palin. Looks like she wears a mop on her head. Somebody told her that if she looks like a MILF that is easily picked up in a bar, she has a chance to be elected and supported by the tea party. Self-proclaimed leader of the repulsive tea party. Tea party stinks. Simple-minded rhetoric. Focuses on "Obamacare" even though it has not been implemented. So shallow in her message and completely void of novel, creative, helpful ideas, that she's frequently seen standing around babbling about President Obama being a "one-term President." She's a pathetic figure, completely out of her element, and her numbers show this. She's in decline. Good for her because she doesn't stand any more of a chance against President Obama than Tonya Harding.

4. Hermain Cain - This guy belongs on the battlefield, stopping enemy fire with his bare hands, and scaring the hell out of the enemy with his flaring nostrils, and angry rhetoric. Maybe even be able to stop a tank with that large, empty noggin. Presents his case strongly, as if he will kill you if you don't buy into his Conservative crap. He's a misguided black man in a party that despises his race. This man can't be taken seriously, and he's not. Not by his party, not by the polls. Privately, members of his own party are disgusted with his very presence, appalled that he has the nerve to consider himself an equal. He rants on with GOP idiocy, trying desperately to avoid the question of why he is a member of a party that promotes racism against people who look just like him. A pathetic figure. Thumbs down.

5. John Huntsman. - Presents his ideas well. Poised, classy, the anti-Perry. He looks Presidential, almost too soft in his demeanor. One gets the impression that he gets facials every night and takes baths in Jergens lotion. His delivery does appear very rehearsed and contrived, punch lines well rehearsed and delivered with excellent timing. He was the Governor of a state that consistently votes the same as the Klan. Does nothing to dispel the notion that the GOP is the party that supports bigotry and racial insensitivity. Clueless on civil rights. The lack of support is doing him a favor. Matched up against the superior President Obama, we are spared the scene of him crying while getting annihilated.

6. Rick Santorum - not a chance in hell. Campaigns like he's running in Quicksand. Represents a repulsive, bigoted ideology with all the problems previously described here. No.

7. Newt Gingrich - Racist, ignorant, elderly imbecile. A repulsive Neocon, he doesn't even belong in the public eye. Hurts to even address him here. He's a non-factor and an embarrassment to the development of mankind. No.

8. Ron Paul - Worst of all. A severe racist. An educated ignoramus. A fringe candidate with a cult following. Soundly rejected in '07, he is well on his way to getting the boot again. He has no more business in this race than Yosemite Sam.

Tremendous edge to President Obama. GOP obstructionist tactics, deceptive marketing, tea party downgrade, and more Bush, cannot unseat this President. Problems during his presidency easily attributable to the most pathetic version of the Conservative ideology since Jim Crow.

President Obama here through 2016!

LMFAO, Perry is not corrupt??!!! When Palin and Bachmann call out a Republican for corruption, you know he's corrupt. I don't think either Perry or Romney is an idiot, but I do think Perry is as nutty as a modern day governor can get. His ideas are more in sync with the 1910's or some third world country.

Not morons, but definitely Mormon, which is the kiss of death in the deep south. Didn't Romney also pass Romneycare, which is identical to Obamacare?

Wrong. Ron Paul spoke out against Bush for almost the whole 8 years Bush was in office.

Oh and calling Ron Paul a racist made for a good laugh. Please keep up the comedy. Ron Paul is definitely not a "racist."

You're happy with business as usual??? How silly to call the ONLY person running that told us the housing bill would destroy the economy, senile? How silly to call the only person running who correctly told us why we were attacked and predicted it years before it happened, senile?
Is that from the Ron Burgundy playbook?

Run the economy into the ground and kill the animals in the Middle East. Yea that's a great platform to run on.

my assessment, results don't matter to some, as long as you have neat campaign slogans. Style over substance Yes We Can!
